Hackleburg Elementary School has been chosen as a Spotlight School at the Alabama State Department of Education Board Meeting! This prestigious honor goes to schools in Alabama that are implementing best practices in the Science of Reading with LETRS. A spotlight committee formed by Alabama State Superintendent Dr. Eric Mackey and the Alabama Reading Initiative visited many campuses over the last few months. As a Spotlight School, the elementary campus and faculty will welcome school administrators and reading teams from across Alabama to visit and observe their teaching practices to make sure every student succeeds. The faculty and staff worked so hard this past year to make great strides in academics. When a child learns to read, their opportunities are infinite…Congratulations!!!
